Picture of a Tasseled Scorpionfish
The tasseled scorpionfish, or small-scaled scorpionfish, Scorpaenopsis oxycephala can reach a maximum length of 36 cm (14 in) and can vary considerably in color.
Adults are bearded with a number of tassels below the jaw hence the name tasseled scorpionfish.
When in shallow waters, swimmers may accidentally tread on them which may cause painful injury from the venomous spines.
